Today, coming home from work, I saw a woman reading a book and pushing the front cover entirely to the back cover while reading. My muscles tensed, I felt the hair in my neck rise and I had to bite my lip! How can anyone brutalize a book in such a manner! There I was, reading my book… carefully, respecting it … but I couldn’t concentrate on the story. I just couldn’t enjoy reading anymore.
So please, whenever you read, try not to break the spines of your books. Books can give you so much, a whole world if you let them … treat them with respect.
